WEBSITE OF THE WEEK


It's not like we ladies don't already have enough pots on the boil and deadlines seem to loom eternal over our humble studios try as we might to clear the decks. But one project we continually find ourselves putting our hands up for is Illustration Friday.

According to the welcome from creator Penny Dullagan "Illustration Friday is a weekly creative outlet/participatory art exhibit for illustrators of all skill levels. It was designed to challenge participants creatively. I believe that every person has a little creative bone in their body. Illustration Friday just gives a no-pressure, fun excuse to use it. No clients looking for a particular thing. No one judging the outcome of the work. It's a chance to experiment and explore and play with visual art. So welcome, novices and pros alike"

Nice one Penny.

Almost an illustrators version of whip up, it provides a word as the starting point. It has an archive of interviews, news updates, shop, and an artists forum and at the end of the week, snap! it's all gone and another one appears. It's always interesting to see just how differently people the world over respond to each week's theme, and a great opportunity to link with other picture makers, doodlers, cutters and pasters, mouse masters and fellow pencil geeks.

This weeks theme has been "match", and you'll be able to catch both our efforts on hml and illustration friday tomorrow.

Oh yes I thought Illustration Friday was a great idea. Maybe I'll get into it too now that my calendar will be clearing soon.
